Three kings parade 2023
By Charlotte Stace
Just when you thought Christmas was over, the Three Magic Kings - Melchior, Gaspar and Balthasar - arrive in Barcelona! The city welcomes the Three Kings (Reyes Magos) on the most magical night of the year with their traditional parade around the city’s streets.
In honour of their arrival, there will be a range of activities aimed at children in the run up to January 5th to help prepare them for the big day. These will include sending letters to the Kings, visiting the Three Kings’ factory, discovering special festive traditions or taking a stroll around the Three Kings Fair.
Yet, when the big day comes, head to the streets and follow the Kings as they parade through Barcelona on regal floats, throwing gifts and sweets to the children. It is truly one of the most special events in Barcelona’s calendar - one not to be missed!
